- THE WOOD COUNTY MUSEUM WILL RE-OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON MONDAY, JULY 6 WITH COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE.
Under advice from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the Wood County Commissioners, the museum will re-open for self-guided tours on Monday, July 6 and will resume regular hours of weekdays 10 AM - 4 PM and weekends from 1-4 PM (closed on public holidays). New cleaning procedures have been put in place, and we do require masks or facial coverings and proper social distancing while inside the building to help curb any spread of potential COVID-19.
Exhibit spaces have been reworked to provide open traffic flow through For Comfort & Convenience, Utopia, and the new People, Places, & Things - a picturesque extravaganza of the Society's collection guaranteed to captivate and inspire audiences.
The museum also offers an outdoor rotating porch exhibit & three online exhibits plus the 32-track Wood County (Non) Driving Tour, featuring local musicians and short narratives about some of Wood County’s most interesting places.
The Museum grounds will remain open as a public park daily from 8 AM until 30 minutes past sunset. Download the Lyle Fletcher Arboretum Guide to identify the trees as you walk the grounds.
